We always have multiple major releases in progress at any one time, so we develop each release on a separate branch.

So right now we have an August release patch branch and an October release branch. The trunk reflects current production ( August release ).

Now we are ready to create Feb release branch. Normally we would branch from the trunk and then merge the October release into it, but it seems that we should just be able to create the Feb branch from the October branch ( instead of trunk ) since we want Feb branch to look just like October at the beginning.

Is this correct ?   Can I branch from another branch ?

Yes, you can.
